Hamden Teens Charged in September Burglary

The two, ages 15 and 16, allegedly broke into a Piper Road home and took items from it, according to police.

Two Hamden teens turned themselves into police Monday in connection with a burglary that happened in September.

"On September 23rd during the afternoon hours, Hamden Police responded to the area of Noble Street and Rose Street on the report of suspicious activity. Officers were advised that two teens were attempting to force open the door of a motor vehicle," Hamden Police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith said in a release Tuesday.

"Upon searching for the juveniles, officers observed an air conditioning unit, lying on the ground, underneath a window on Noble Street. The homeowner observed the teens on his property moments before the air conditioner unit was discovered," Smith said.

A short time later, Officers Craig Appleby and Derick Manning caught the teens on Circular Avenue. They were found with electronic equipment, money, a musical instrument and a bb gun, some of which were taken in a burglary that occurred at a Piper Road home that day, Smith said.

On Monday the two teens, one 15 and the other 16, turned themselves in to police and were charged with third-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary, fourth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit fourth-degree larceny. 

Both are scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court in New Haven on Dec. 10.
